In the first 12 months, as each Deputy Commissioner plans for the achievement of the 2007 Goal, he or she will also determine how that work will be evaluated. These plans will take account of, and build on, our existing evaluative activity including those in relation to the Employer of Choice Framework, Senior Leadership Management Development Programme, and the E-government Strategy. The senior management team will agree priorities for evaluative activity.
In recent years the process of performance management has improved, to include widespread reference checking to get a stronger understanding of the contributions Public Service chief executives are making. This improvement needs to be maintained. In addition, performance management of chief executives needs to be used more actively to support the Government's priorities as expressed through Managing for Outcomes, and each chief executive and their department's contribution to the State Services Development Goals. The development of processes for performance management and relationship management will be the responsibility of the Deputy State Services Commissioner. This responsibility will include the development of means to assess and report on progress.
Some existing evaluative activity will continue in relation to the Development Goals:
- An evaluation of the process of developing the Human Resources Framework was completed in 2004. The use of products by departments has been assessed, and evaluation of selected products is underway. Evaluation of progress towards the goals of the Framework will now occur in the context of the Employer of Choice goal and milestones.
- The first evaluation of the Senior Leadership and Management Development (SLMD) Strategy is nearing completion, and will be reported in 2005. This covers the early successes and impact to date of the SLMD Strategy, and forecasts to 2008. A further full evaluation is scheduled for 2008.
- An assessment of progress against the 2004 e-government programme goal was completed last year, and a further full evaluation is planned for 2007. In the meantime there will be some evaluation of individual initiatives within the programme.
